Huxham Threatens Legal Action

Exeter's departed Managing Director Ian Huxham has threatened legal action against the club for constructive dismissal following his departure from the post less than two weeks ago.

The Exeter Express & Echo reports that a statement from the club denies any wrongdoing:

"At the moment the club does not intend to expand on Mr Huxham's reasons for resigning. That is up to Mr Huxham himself, as it was his decision to resign. Since Mr Huxham's resignation, the Board of Directors have been considering his reasons for resigning and taking legal advice in relation to threatened breach of contract proceedings for a significant sum. Having now had the opportunity to consider the circumstances fully, the Board of Directors would like to state the position of Exeter City FC is that it has acted reasonably and lawfully at all times, and it has not committed any act of wrongdoing towards Mr Huxham."

Huxham, 43, was two years into his five year contract but had received criticism over the £40,000 salary.
